My last author of the night is…
New York Times Bestselling Author Cheryl Holt!
Cheryl Holt is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of twenty-seven novels. Her books have been released to wide acclaim, and she has won or been nominated for many national awards. She is particularly proud to have been named “Best Storyteller of the Year,” by the trade magazine RT Book Reviews.
Cheryl’s latest book is NICHOLAS:
CAN A ROGUE AND REBEL
Captain Nicholas Price has dedicated his life to the army. He never dreamed he’d someday become Earl of Stafford, a title and position he neither sought nor expected. Although he has no interest in the estate, and is intent on being an absentee landlord, he’s determined to do his duty to the land and its people. He hires a land agent to manage the property, not realizing that — as the man implements draconian policies that negatively impact the local citizenry — Nicholas will be pushed into the path of meddling reformer, Emeline Wilson.
BECOME THE MAN OF HER DREAMS?
Emeline is an over-educated spinster who believes in justice and fairness and is determined to make the world a better place. She would have liked to wed and had a family of her own, but she had to stay at home and care for her widowed father and two young sisters. With her father’s death, she’s lost his house and income and is about to be evicted by the cruel land agent running Stafford Manor. As one of many who are suffering, she’s elected by her neighbors to serve as spokeswoman for the town as they demand just treatment from the new Lord Stafford.
Emeline is determined that Nicholas behave better, that he become a better man. As they clash, tempers flare and passion sizzles. But as love begins to blossom, so does danger from those resolved to keep them apart. Can love survive the most wicked enemy of all?
